Auckland's premier queer youth organisation needs a new full-time staff member, after the recent departure of its two paid staff. Youth Coordinator Robert Marshall has taken up a role with the SAFE Network, and Education Officer Serafin Dillon is now with the Auckland City Council. Rainbow Youth chairperson Daniel Chorley says he's pleased Marshall and Dillon both seem to be enjoying their new jobs. "It happens to many staff at Rainbow Youth, starting out with us and getting the skills to move on to bigger things," he says. The organisation is keen to begin 2009 – Rainbow Youth's 20th anniversary year – with a new Executive Director. "The role has been created to develop and expand Rainbow Youth, and to meet the current and future needs of the community," Chorley explains. "They will be responsible for managing the operations of the organisation, including staffing, funding, youth support and education, in a largely autonomous role. They will become the public face of Rainbow Youth, reporting to and supported by the Executive Board. "This is a unique opportunity to lead and grow this dynamic and exciting organisation," he says. Applications are now open, with further information available on Rainbow Youth's official website, linked below.
